Lamar Odom has experienced divorcing a Kardashian woman.
And the former basketball player – who was married to Khloe Kardashian from 2009 – 2016 – has publicly offered his advice to former sister-in-law Kim Kardashian and Kanye West amid speculation that the couple is en route to a divorce.
LA Lakers star Lamar – who has been on a journey of self-improvement following years of battling his addiction issues – says he wants the rapper and Keeping Up With The Kardashians personality to focus on their mental health and do “the best thing for them.”
The 41-year-old told Us Weekly: ” I think it’s very important to do the best thing for your mental health and our mental space.”
He continued: “If that’s the best thing for them, then they have my blessings.”
Adding that he has not been in touch with Yeezy brand owner Kanye – who was a huge support to him he suffered several strokes, as well as kidney failure and hospitalised for more than a month after being found unconscious in the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada in 2015 – he continued: “I haven’t been able to speak to him. I would love to though [after] what he did for me.”
Kim has reportedly instructed a lawyer to start negotiating terms of divorce from Kanye – who she shares four children: North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three and one-year-old Psalm with.
Page Six reported that a “divorce is imminent” for the Hollywood couple, with Kim hiring Laura Wasser, who has been a divorce lawyer for the stars.
A source told them: “They are keeping it low-key but they are done. Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks.”
It has been reported that Kim has stopped wearing her wedding ring while Kanye takes an extended break at his $14 million Wyoming ranch.
The source added: “Kim got Kanye to go up there [Wyoming] so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done.”
Kim has been a big supporter of her husband while he deals with his mental health issues, but the source indicated that this support reached a final destination.
They added: “Now this divorce is happening because Kim has grown up a lot.
“She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign.
“Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s***, and she’s just had enough of it.”
